Take a look at this Wiki page, it should help: http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/Ethernet

Basically, you'll have to find a away to grab network packets from your setup. For that you either need a device that can provide copies of the packets it forwards (called SPAN port or monitor port), and I doubt your router can do that - check the manual if it does. Or, you can use a Network Switch that is manageable which has that feature and put it between router and XBox.
